DSMM - Database of Simulated Molecular Motions


  • The purpose of this database is to provide an easily-searchable source of information about movies showing biomolecular motions that have been generated by computer simulation. All of the movies are available through the internet.

  • Molecules simulated include proteins, DNA, RNA, sugars and lipids. Simulation techniques include Molecular Dynamics, Brownian Dynamics and automated docking procedures.

  • We welcome new submissions as well as feedback from your explorations of the DSMM.

  • DSMM is described by Finocchiaro G., Wang T., Hoffmann R., Gonzalez A. and Wade R.C in Nucleic Acid Research [pdf] 2003,31:456-457.

  • DSMM is at http://projects.villa-bosch.de/mcm/database/dsmm


  • We recommend Internet Explorer version 3.02 or higher or Netscape Communicator version 6 or higher to browse, search, submit the movies (although you may be able to use other web browsers,too).
